President's Message 


Happy birthday SMPS Central PA!

June marks our 10-year birthday so we took the opportunity to celebrate us on June 2nd. With 7 of our 9 past presidents and myself in attendance, our Founding Father and the chapter’s first president, Perry Heath, shared how the chapter got its start while acknowledging many individuals who were involved. We were certain to capture memories through a photobooth, as well as photography by Fine Line Photography, so be certain to check out our photo album on our Facebook page!

During our celebration, we recognized two extremely valuable members of our chapter. The Horizon Award is presented to a person new to our industry who “stands out in the room” and whose early success and commitment to the industry shows outstanding potential for business stardom as an A/E/C marketer. It is with great pride that we announce that Ashleigh Fiorino from Kinsley Construction is this year’s Horizon Award winner! One of Ashleigh’s nominators wrote, “She is eager to learn, is willing to take on responsibilities, and follows through on her commitments with a sense of urgency. As she gains additional experience and grows in her career, she will be an increasingly valuable asset to any company or organization to which she belongs.” Congratulations Ashleigh!

The Keystone Award honors a more senior professional in our industry whose career accomplishments and service to our chapter are especially noteworthy. I am so honored I was able to present the Keystone Award to Jennifer Smyers, CPSM from Boyle Construction! Jen’s nominator wrote, “Jen provides valuable support to our chapter. She volunteers to help with a variety of programs, gives her expertise input, and is a prominent member of the Board of Directors.” Congratulations Jen!

One more accomplishment we celebrated was SMPS Central PA’s second Striving for Excellence (SFE) award submission, which recognizes chapters for excellence in their management and service to members on a national level. The criteria of the SFE is laid out based on several factors, including programs, membership, financial health, communications, and leadership. The content, design, review, and preparation took countless hours of effort and work to complete by the end of April. Judging of all submissions will take place and winning chapters will be recognized at the National Conference in August. We will have copies of the award submission at each program – take a look at the team we have working behind the scenes that help to make your Chapter so valuable.

“Winning as a team is better than anything. It’s great to share success.” ~Jim Harbaugh
